Don’t forget to get your picture taken with the Mountaineer statue while you’re visiting campus!
The Mountaineer statue stands proudly outside the Mountainlair student union
and has been a symbol of the University for more than four decades. It was dedicated Oct. 2, 1971, during WVU’s annual Homecoming weekend.
The bronze statue was commissioned by Donald DeLue, the renowned sculptor whose works also grace the Gettysburg battlefield and Omaha Beach in Normandy.
